On Monday, several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates gathered at the Poor People’s Campaign presidential forum in Washington, D.C. This is the first of several cattle calls in the week leading up to the first presidential debate, and the candidates are trying to distinguish themselves and gain support.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Mr. Trump’s reelection campaign chose Orlando to officially launch his 2020 campaign, with a rally scheduled for Tuesday evening. CBS News Political Unit associate producer Ellee Watson notes that the city presents an opportunity for large gains for either party, according to data from Univision. In 2018, turnout among Hispanics who were registered Republicans saw a 60% increase over 2014, compared to a 29% increase among non-Hispanic Republicans. In Orlando, one in three new registered voters between 2014 and 2018 were Hispanic. In the same time period, Hispanic turnout increased 2.7 times as much as non-Hispanic turnout, according to the data.
